Now that the season has changed to cold weather, many people find their overall skin is becoming drier and more sensitive. The perineal skin, which roughly consists of the area that fits inside your toilet seat when sitting down, is very sensitive and prone to breakdown. Continual contact with moisture, urine and feces can cause damage to this skin, causing discomfort and irritation.
To help maintain good skin health and ensure pH balanced skin, we recommend using specially formulated continence care products. Wipes and washcloths along with creams and washes help to ensure your skin stays clean, healthy and balanced.
Many of our Healthwick customers who use incontinence skin care products see the difference they can make to their comfort, skin health and overall quality of life. If you’re managing incontinence and are consistently battling sensitive and/or irritated perineal skin, we’d recommend you consider using incontinence skin care products to promote better skin health.
